Aberdeen is a unique climbing area in Scotland, with extensive areas of Sea Cliffs. Some of these cliffs have been controversially bolted, retro-bolted (etc) and as a result, there are now a number of sport routes here and lots of dodgy rusty bolts.

There are many more routes of a traditional nature however and, as ever, the debate goes on as to whether or not the bolts should be removed from the sport routes...

but if YOU have climbed on the sea cliffs near Aberdeen , please let us know about them.
